New National Guard Training Center Opens at GCCC

Garden City, KS ( It was at least a full year in the making, but Wednesday morning the new Kansas National Guard Training Center was dedicated on the campus of Garden City Community College.  GCCC President Doctor Herbert Swender was on hand to underscore the significance of the occasion.


Governor Brownback and other dignitaries were in attendance.  Kansas Adjutant General Lee Tafanelli praised all those who recognized the opportunities of this partnership.

 Governor Brownback hopes this venture is only the beginning.

Brownback challenged all of us to support men and women in uniform recognizing the sacrifices they make everyday.

 The dedication ended with a ribbon cutting and the firing of a cannon by National Guardsman.
